The Girls Like Me L&B Conference
Our first event took place in Luton on Friday, 11th October 2019 to celebrate the International Day of the Girl. The Conference theme was Anxious/Stressed/ Depressed, No More! We were so excited to encourage, empower and inspire the girls of Luton and Beds. We welcomed girls from 11 – 18 and their mums, aunts, big cousins to come and join us at the Riverside Suite at Venue 360. There were 2 sessions: 13:00 and 16:00. What a night it was! Thanks to those of you who donated to our campaign you made a difference. Here is last year’s flyer….
Doors opened for registration to our afternoon session at 16:00. During this session had inspiring speakers, engaging activities, developmental workshops. a fashion show.
The wonderful speakers we had were Hasina, the Self-defence expert, Tene Edwards, writer, author and self-love advocate from Walk With Wings, Anjeli Parmar from Love Gold Boutique and of course Jasmine Mbye, Speaker, Trainer, Coach and Director of The Like Me CIC. Each speaker shared how they have dealt or deal with Anxiety, Stress and/or Depression. We created a safe space to share and it was a memorable day, we marked the occasion well. The refreshments and a light meal went down well too.
The Girls Like Me Luton & Beds Conference was the first of many so we will be doing it again this year. So please continue to give us your support and share our GoFundMe campaign by clicking here. Or you can donate. Even £5 or £10 will make a difference. Thank you in advance.
The Girls Like Me L&B Summer Camp
We were hoping to run our Summer Camp this month. Due to all the uncertainty this year, it will take place in summer 2021.
Last summer we ran some free workshops from 27-30th August 2019 to help the preparation for the new school year. Each new year brings new challenges so we looked at common issues young girls face.
Our personal development sessions focused on key issues to prepare for the academic year ahead such as; confidence, motivation, resilience, how to deal with problems and values and beliefs. We were thankful to those who joined us and made the sessions successful.
The Girls Like Me Luton Magazine
